Woven Skin Talks: NY Climate Week Exhibition with Panel Discussion Sept 24th
September 22, 2018 to September 24, 2018
The U.S. premiere of the internationally renowned textile artist Claudy Jongstra’s immersive nomadic art installation, WOVEN SKIN is happening in NYC during Climate Week.
Presented by the A/D/O and the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, the monumental sculpture is composed of 60 natural wool artworks from Jongstra’s indigenous flock of Drenthe Heath Sheep, saturated with brilliant pigment from extensive natural dye research of madder root, grown in the Studio’s own small-scale biodynamic farm in the Northern Netherlands. Each artwork is stretched onto a modular steel armature in a confluence of primal and modernist architectural impulses.
The exhibit will run from September 22nd to September 24th on view at A/D/O 29 Norman Ave. Brooklyn, NY between 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
The exhibit will also be on view at Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture from September 27th to September 30th between 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
You are invited to join Claudy Jongstra with CEE’s Karenna Gore and others for a Panel Discussion at 6:30 pm on September 24th.
